Jackie, I am approaching 50, and just over one year separated from my husband. As I look forward and begin to think about the possibility of future relationships, I can see that dating after 50 might be difficult. It seems to me that lots of middle aged women get divorced and stay single. I may be generalizing but do you see the same thing? Men our ago want to meet someone younger. I would like to know your thoughts on the likelihood of 50 year old women finding a second life partner.
Especially one in the same age bracket.
I do have a few things to say about your. I have had some issues while shopping for clothes in recent years, because all the clothing out there either seems too young or too old for me. Perhaps this same attitude applies when it comes to dating. But 50 is a different story. Am I perfect? Hell no. Am I kind of old?
But that is what it is. I am me and all I can do is live life to my potential. Also, consider a wide age range when dating after I think as people get older, age matters less. I equate happiness with: children, family, career, fun and surrounding myself with people I love and enjoy, whether that involves romantic love or not.
My bottom line is, I just want to be happy. Separated for one year is a very short time. Work on yourself. Work on healing. Have fun. Divorced woman looking overweight dating it just happen.

I left my wife after 25 years of marriage and 30 of being together. I could think of many reason but I had lost happiness a long time ago and tried to hold on. Eventually I asked for a divorce and it devastated my Divorced woman looking overweight dating.
Choosing between making everyone else happy or yourself, including God, was a huge decision for me, I decided I needed to be happy. I am 58 and thought about living my remaining years up happy and just could not bare the thoght. A lot of people have their opinion on what I did and I am sure some, if not most, think I am a monster for doing this after so many years. I do have some guilt, guilt, for not letting my ex-wife know what I was thinking or what I was feeling.
I do not think it would have made a difference bhe will never believe that. Anyway, I hope this is not true, women over 50 divorced never finding happiness again. I loved your statement of marriage not making you happy. I know it will take my ex years to get over our divorce, but I do wish her the best, sometimes more than what I wish for myself. I keep hearing people say it is easier for men to get over a divorce than women, hopefully not too true.
I wish my ex would read your blog. We can talk sometimes but often it goes back to what I did to her and that is not a good place to be, ever. I agree with Nancy. You should have left your wife years ago so she could have found someone deserving of her.
Men like you make me sick to my stomach. Susan — Rather than calling people names a real of maturitycan you offer what in your opinion he should have done given his being unhappy for such a long time? Or is that asking too much from such an emo personality? I disagree. Men like him are trained from birth to grit it out for the kids, to meet their responsibilities and to set aside their feelings to do their duty. They enter the F-YOU fifties and are prepared to let everyone else judgments of them go because doing what was expected of them was killing them and likely there was no gratitude for their sacrifices.
I agree with you. I believe he was trying to protect his ex and their kids from the pain a divorce causes. His ex will be fine… everything happens for a reason!! God has a plan for all of us. I was married for 23 yearsand was very much committed to my ex.
He blind-sided me one day accusing me of infidelity, and all kinds of things that I never did. It took me a long time to realize that he was actually the one doing all those things!! So Susan, if you were unhappy in a marriage would continue to suffer or rather part your ways as maybe friends than enemies? Or cheat? Either one committing adultery is wrong.
Your Divorce Journey is yours alone to take. If this woman was dragging you down, you owed it to yourself to begin your Eat, Pray, Love Journey. So glad you chose the right path, just as so many women have when their male counterparts began to become a burden on their paths to self-realization. To darmok, from April 7, It sounds like you and your wife were emotionally, worlds apart. Did she not pick up on your unhappiness? If you had kids and waited till they grew up to leave that seems like a better idea than leaving your wife with a household of young children.
If you did not have kids it seems somewhat of a waste of time to have stayed so long without discussing your feelings; either way, your marriage sounds like it was emotionally blocked, you both were not communicating honestly. You dont mention if you have children and how they feel about what you have done, or if you still have a relationship with them. You were exceptionally selfish and i suspect you may have other issues at play.Divorced woman looking overweight dating
